TOO MUCH SUGAR-TRX-OTS-SS-OTS


ALL NEW IN THIS MORNING'S HEALTHCAST ---

WHY TOO MUCH SUGAR COULD BE DEADLY.

RESEARCHERS SAY CONSUMING EXTRA SUGAR, MUCH OF IT HIDDEN IN PROCESSED FOODS, CAN RAISE THE RISK OF FATAL HEART PROBLEMS.

RESEARCHERS FOUND MOST AMERICANS EAT MORE THAN THE SAFEST AMOUNT.

TO PUT THIS IN PERSPECTIVE FOR YOU ---

HAVING A CINNAMON ROLL WITH YOUR MORNING COFFEE.

A SUPER-SIZED SUGARY SODA AT LUNCH.

AND A SCOOP OF ICE CREAM AFTER DINNER WOULD PUT YOU IN THE *HIGHEST RISK CATEGORY IN THE STUDY.

THAT MEANS YOUR CHANCE OF DYING PREMATURELY FROM HEART PROBLEMS IS NEARLY THREE TIMES GREATER THAN FOR PEOPLE WHO EAT ONLY FOODS WITH LITTLE ADDED SUGAR. Return to index of stories...
